Do you take care of your lawn better then your body?
It’s entirely possible that caring for one’s lawn is an award-winning event in my neighbourhood. This is new for me since I just recently moved back to the city after living for 8 years in the country where the word “lawn” was rarely uttered! We had an “acreage” and a “back 40” but no “lawn” out there! But it’s different in my new neighbourhood…and it’s got me thinking.
You see, I don’t particularly subscribe to lawn-mania. So as I sip my iced tea and read my novel, I have time to ponder the lawn care extravaganza that takes place around me. As with most things in life, I tend to compare lawn-mania to what I know best and am most passionate about – health care, of course!
Here’s what I am wondering…
- Do you frequently check your body’s “soil” to make sure it is:
- acidic or alkaline? or
- full of bugs?
- How do you fertilize your body? Do you use lots of great minerals, specially-balanced blends, and fresh foods to suit your individual needs? Or do you just toss a bunch of cow poop in your body and hope for the best?
- When was the last time you checked to see what your body was growing? Are you growing weeds (tumours, skin tags, warts) or beautiful flowers (healthy nails, skin, hair)?
- If your body is growing weeds, how are you taking care of them? With dangerous chemicals (like pharmaceuticals) or with something natural (like homeopathy)?
- When was the last time you treated your body to some maintenance – a good trim, a little pruning, some beautifying, some attention?
You see, it occurs to me that if we were to give our bodies one ounce of the attention that we give to our lawns and gardens, we would be by far a more healthy society. So go on, water your body, take a peek to see what you’ve got growing, assess your needs, pay a bit of attention to your body and its state of health…you’ll be happy you did!
